Midwest Food Bank will open a new location in the Hershey, Pennsylvania, area, MFB President and CEO David Kieser announced today. Jason and Aleta Serrano of New York are leading a team of organizers to expand MFB's impact. They are currently seeking a facility to lease for the new division.
"In Pennsylvania, 1 in 8 households are food insecure, and we anticipate that number will increase," says David. "It is our hope to show the love of Christ to those in need in that area."
The Pennsylvania Division will be the ninth domestic location for Midwest Food Bank. The warehouse will be strategically located to also serve New Jersey and New York, aligning with MFB's existing remote distribution in New York City.
"God has called us to do this. My heart will always go out to those in need," says Jason, a recipient of food assistance in his youth. "We are just happy MFB exists."
Lord willing, MFB Pennsylvania will be operational this summer. Get to know Jason and Aleta, the driving force behind this location by clicking here.
